MINNEAPOLIS, MN April 24, 2013 – University Dining Services/ARAMARK is proud to introduce District Executive Chef Scott Pampuch as the newest member of its culinary team.

As the new District Executive Chef for the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities campus, Pampuch brings more than 15 years of experience as well as a deep passion for sustainable food.

“I believe we have a responsibility to respect the craft that has come before us and the land that sustains us,” Chef Pampuch says. “I am driven by the opportunity to deliver a sense of place on every plate. By sourcing and cooking locally and seasonally, we can evoke our surroundings, our local farms and all they provide, with a single, perfect meal.”

Pampuch has been active in sustainability on a local, regional and national level for the last ten years. As the founder of the award-winning Minneapolis restaurant Corner Table, Pampuch is known for incorporating local foods from family farms into handcrafted menus. Additionally, he created the sustainable supper series Tour de Farm and was featured on Ovation Network’s “In Search of Food” and the Celebrity Chef Tour Dinner Series.

“ARAMARK Higher Education is full of opportunities for chefs like myself to grow and learn,” Pampuch says. “Especially at the University of Minnesota, there are endless possibilities.”
